New Stuff On My Birthday!

Happy Birthday to me! I am old enough to know better & young enough to still know how to have FUN!!
Ok, I recently painted the wooden box & decorated it with two small Gecko ornaments. One on either side. I then put some of my roses out of my garden inside the box in some oasis stuff.
I thought it looked ok! I have it sitting on my dining room table.
The owl card was made using a SU punch. I stamped the words using a small alphabet stamp set. Thanks for visiting! {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

Here is a recent photo took of "Romeo-Valentino"! (AKA "Mr.Cool"!)
It was a hot sunny day & he was protecting his eyes by wearing his cute hot pink sunnies! He's a bit of a poser & has a real personality!
Thanks for visiting, have a cool day!

Stampin' Up Note Cards

Some quick & easy note cards I made using Stampin' Up stamps. I made a set of ten cards.
Thanks for visiting, {{HUGS}} from me to you:-) Enjoy your weekend!

Mini Stampin' Up Cards

These are some mini note cards I made using Stampin' Up stamps. Love those stamps...
Thanks fro dropping by, {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)


Here is one of the cards I made using a word stamp set from Stampin' Up.
The flower center has these tiny 'mosaic' bead things glued on using a glue that keeps it's height, it doesn't go flat. Really great stuff! I am totally hooked on it!
A quick easy & simple card to make:-)
{{HUGS}} from me to you & thank you for dropping by!


The flowers & hearts stamp is from a Stampendous stamp set from times gone by...
The apricot card is some new stuff I got from Stampin' Up. I really like this colour!
What you CANNOT see (sadly:-( ) is the tiny pink beads are not flat, they are quite 'high' if you know what I mean?! I used this new glue that when you put glitter or beads on it, it keeps it's height and doesn't go flat. It looks MUCH better IRL!

Romeo-Valentino, My Hero!

These are my two cats, Bella-Rosa & Romeo-Valentino.
This was published in the Spring issue of Animals Voice magazine.
Ro-Ro won me a $100 shopping voucher...of course I bought them some toys!
Thanks for visiting, have a great day.
{{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

Two Cards

The Tulip card was made by punching just the wing on an SU bird punch. Each flower has three "wings" punched out & assembled to look like a Tulip. The stems are also from the same bird punch.
The cat card has a bow on which used to be an ear-ring! I found it at the bus stop one day & decided to use it on a card!
Thanks for visiting, have a great day!

Cards For Today

Here are a few cards I made this week. The paper flowers on some of them were made using the Cuttlebug Quilling dies, great fun!
The Halloween one was made using a spellbinder die (circle) and I sponged the circle with a yellow stamp pad then stamped the face (SU sponge stamp set). I coloured the cat with copics, and the mouse. This card was alot of fun to make!
Thanks for visiting, have a great weekend! {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

Spring Is Here!

And not only in my garden! The bright orange flower (Ice Plant) is one of the flowers in my garden & the other flowers are some paper ones I have recently made, using the Cuttlebug Quilling dies. Lot's of fun!
We are having another wet weekend here:-( so I'm using the time to sit at my desk and create!
Thank you for visiting & have a great weekend! {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

Two Cards In One Day!

I used an MS corner punch (Double Loops) to punch around the cream coloured circle, on the circle card. All the circles are made with my Nestabilities. For embellishments I have added some gems & pearls.
The Christmas card was quick & easy. The snowflakes are an MS punch. I stamped the words then using one of my nesties I cut out & embossed the shape & stuck it to the card.
I stuck pearls to the flakes...some of my best friends are flakes...(lol)
Thanks for visiting,

Four Floors Up And Slashed to Pieces...

Well, that's what I FELT like! Let me explain...
I have just had emergency surgery to remove my gall bladder & I was up on the fourth floor & now have four "wounds" from my surgery! It was a TOTAL surprise having the the surgery, I had been on the waiting list twice & bumped off twice..well I don't NEED the waiting list NOW!
I am still a bit tender - people who have fibro feel pain alot more & we feel it for longer than everyone else, so I am ALLOWED to feel a bit grumpy!
I am thankful to the surgeon for putting me on the stand by list & getting my surgery done - no more gb attacks now!
However, I digress, (which for me, is easy..) I have not posted anything for awhile but I AM 'dabbling' with my arty farty stuff & there WILL be a new post here soon I hope! I've kind of lost my mojo (anyone finding it please send it to me asap!) and have been a little depressed lately. This was my FIFTH trip to hospital within a few months & I have had ENOUGH thank you!
So thank you for visiting & I WILL be back soon,
{{HUGS}} from me to you and have a great week:-)
